This is a stupid question, I think I know the answer, but since something about sanding on my shiny expensive pulley I just bought dos not seem right, I am going to ask. Since having it chrome plated is sure to add a few thousands of an inch, I need to sand on it for the bearing to fit, right? Somebody help this stupid, helpless, 59 year old Millwright State Champion machinist. I can't put my bike back together until I find out.

I have read all about them now, But now that I have thought about it awhile I do remember seeing the dots years ago and saying to a room full of people what this white dot because I remembered at the time seeing a red one also, nobody knew, and the internet wasn't so prevalent back then( yes that long ago)so I went on ignorant of something so critically important.I have since got the bike back together and I did most of the back rim myself and I did not have enough parts to construct a jig wide enough to balance the rim. I just finished doing 95 MPH on my bike. And i guess that the fact that the stock Dunlop's are certified for over 186 MPH must help because there was no vibration what-so-ever that I could discern. I am going to try to find some one that can balance it on the bike

Just curious where did you get it chromed and how much did it cost?
